The Internet Archive used to have a lot more broadcasts of Guest Star, especially the ones from the late 50s and early 60s with announcer Del Sharbett. Does anyone know what happened?

Great Gildersleeve episode
The Gildersleeve story is quite amusing but it fades out just before the 11 minute mark while Gildy and Birdie are still discussing bonds, so we don't get to the punchline.

I don't think Rosie meant it that way
The transcribed series Guest Star was a 15 minute filler made available to small independent stations. Each broacast featured a different star and a copy of prepared questions were issued so that the local announcer could carry on an interview as if the star was actually in the studio. The announcer would ask the question and then play a particular band on the record where the guest star would give an appropriate respone. On the Rosemary Clooney interview, the announcer asked if Rosie had any interesting hobbies. Through a mixup between the script and the record, or the announcer played the wrong band, the answer came out "Mel (Ferrer) and I plan to have several children." Ooops!!
